My 01' 426 has had many problems starting since I've had it and the Yamaha service rep wants to send me a ignition from a yz400 they have sitting around. This sounds like a bad idea to me, are they not different?

What do you guys think?

I had a 01'That had the bad cdi and carb. I made the dealer replace them both after the warranty was out. Yamaha knows about the problem make them fix it!!!!!!!!! I have also replaced the entire top end because of an oil pump failure. That I had to eat to the tune of 950.00 in parts the dealer ate the labor. He did all he could.

Make them make it right you spent six grand!!!
